The Healthy Gut
The gut lies in the center of your body and is also the center of microbiological activity. It makes sense to optimize the inner workings of your stomach. Once your guts are running healthy and happy, you can expect other parts – from your brain to your metabolism – to follow suit.
There is no single key to a healthy gut. You have to start somewhere, though, and a good starting point is adding apple cider vinegar to your daily diet. Give this a try for 30 days, and you just might be surprised at how much healthier you feel.
Since there is much we can do to shape the environment within our guts, we have control over our microbiota and can compensate for the lack of control we have over our human genome. Our microbiome contains one hundred times more genes than our human genome, so in fact there is about 99 percent of associated genetic material that we have the potential to mould in ways that are beneficial to us.
Gut bacteria or microbes live in our digestive tract helping us digest food, prevent infection, and shown to play a role in our physical fitness. Gut flora, gut microbiota, and gastrointestinal microbiota are other common names used for gut bacteria. Our gut contains the largest amount of bacteria compared to other parts of the body and with an estimated 500 to 1,000 variety of species. These species are broken down into trillions of microbes that populate the gut.
We begin forming gut bacteria from birth and microbial balance is established from our food and environment. There are constant shifts of good and bad gut bacteria in response to what we eat working to balance the digestive tract. When we consume unhealthy food, we feed the bad bacteria causing a negative imbalance.
Apple Cider Vinegar & Your Inner Ecosystem
Apple cider vinegar is rich in potassium and helps to re-establish a healthy inner ecosystem, your key to strength and immunity.
A healthy inner ecosystem is made up of the friendly microflora (good bacteria and yeast) that act as your internal health team of sorts. They aid your digestion and help you get the nutrients you need to stay healthy. Unfortunately, most Kiwis today have an imbalanced inner ecosystem.
This inner ecosystem imbalance could be present at birth or occur from poor diet and lifestyle habits setting the stage for pathogens that overpower healthy microflora.
For healing and detoxification, apple cider vinegar is a great addition to your Body Ecology lifestyle.
In addition to nourishing your inner ecosystem, apple cider vinegar can:
- Restore your body's natural pH balance - Your blood is supposed to be slightly alkaline, but just as poor diet and lifestyle habits harm your inner ecosystem, they also harm the pH balance of your blood. As your blood becomes acidic, the stage is set for illness. Apple cider vinegar helps restore your body's pH.
- Aid digestion - Apple cider vinegar helps stimulate your stomach acid, aiding the digestion of protein and fats. Good digestion is essential for staying healthy and naturally slim.
- Promote the growth of healthy microflora - apple cider vinegar is a prebiotic, which feeds probiotics (the healthy microflora in your inner ecosystem).
- Nourish the microflora (probiotics) and encourage them to work more efficiently, keeping you healthy and strong. The synbiotic effect from fermented foods and drinks means that not only do they help populate your intestines with beneficial bacteria, they also help improve the survival, implantation and growth of newly added microflora strains.
- Stop sugar cravings - use apple cider vinegar next time you have a craving for that bowl of ice cream or piece of chocolate cake. Here's a quick remedy that may stop you from indulging: Add two teaspoons of raw apple cider vinegar to a 6 oz glass of filtered water, and drink it down.
Because of apple cider vinegar's importance to your health and immunity, it is a key ingredient in many Body Ecology salad dressings and sauces.ORDER Due Vittorie APPLE VINEGAR by clicking here
